    Hi everyone,
    I'd like to know if there is an easy way to bring back a Wii to a HB-free state like if the console had nothing unofficial installed on it ?
    Thanks in advance for your support.

    Alright, so if I get it well, a simple update through the regular system menu to firmware 4.2 will delete everything unofficial and deliver a system menu as clean as an "untouched" wii ?

    Also the update won't remove the most recent HBC.

    Used the virginise guide the other day on a launch day wii works a treat uninstalled bootmii boot2 also

    if you're on 4.2 you can always downgrade to 4.1 and then remove hacks(cios, bootmii, HBC channels) and then update to 4.2 and get all the stubs and stuff and then you can always format the console to be sure after update is successful

    If he did a "safe update" he most likely didn't install boot2v4. So a normal update to 4.2 should remove it if it wasn't installed as an IOS
